S/C on a high KM car?

I recently came across a AA S/C for a really good price and i was wondering if I should get it, the only thing am worried about is that my car is a 9 years old car with 160 000KM. I've fixed every single problem so far on the car and it runs perfectly. I have a 330ci 2001 and i wanted to put all the bolt on ( headers, exhaust, Chip, Intake etc.. ) but now my S/C is gonna cost me the same price...What should I do?!?! Btw the kit is brand new only thing missing is the software anyone know who how much that can cost me.


Thank you

I'd pick S/C. Love my AA kit.
Get compression checked before you buy.
Soft is about $600 if i remember correctly. I'd contact them directly.

^+1, what he said.
I'm at 210.000 km and running strong with an ESS twinscrew 2+ kit.
I supercharged it at 163000 km.
Check your engine's health and you'll be ok.

You may need to run a catch can. Mine at 150,000 developed oil in the intake due to worn valve seals. This is nothing crazy, but could happen
